Ida was in the perfect location to explore Dartmoor. Wonderful, spacious areas for children to play. The cottage had a sociable open plan area with wood provided to fuel the woodburner.

We had a wonderful long weekend at Ida cottage, which we booked along with Lena for a big birthday get away with friends. The cottage was warm and inviting. The standard of the furniture and linens was excellent. The bathrooms were spotless and we all loved having our own en suite. The children were snug in their room and had fun peering out of the little arrow slit windows. It was lovely to go to bed listening to the sound of the river. Outside facilities were excellent. Plenty of space to let the children run free. They paddled in the river and made bridges over to the other side with planks, there was also a football goal and ball, a big trampoline and an open barn with ping pong table, table football and plenty of chairs round a big table for the adults to gather around and chat. As there was lighting, we had an evening party around the fire pit and had a great time. I would return in a heart beat and thank the hosts for a wonderful birthday weekend.

Amazingly comfy, roomy and cosy. We couldn't have a asked for anything more. So quiet and hosts were very friendly and accommodating

Ida Cottage is a spacious cottage - great for 6 adults, beautifully clean and decorated well. It is situated in fabulous grounds where you could go to sleep listening to the sounds of the river over the rocks. Plenty of space to sit outside, have a barbeque or make use of a sheltered games area with a table tennis table and table football. An easy journey to the coast, close to the Cornish border, with lots of interesting places to visit. I would definitely stay here again!

Very pleasant stay from home to cottage, settled in so easily. Beautiful cosy cottage in Dartmoor, loved using the stove burner in the evenings after a day out in the rain. Comfy beds and spacious bathrooms. Would love to visit again.

Comfortable cottage in lovely setting. Very peaceful.


Ida cottage is in a beautiful rural setting and it was peaceful and relaxing to be staying in such a setting with excellent facilities available in the spacious cottage and in the nearby pretty town of Tavistock.

Lovely friendly service from Classic Cottages, beautiful property. A home away from home. Would love to go back again.

Lovely relaxing location. Tasteful decor.. good walks nearby! Well equipped cottage x

Lovely setting on beautiful farm. Open spaces for kids to play. Old barn conversion that is so well done. Kitchen well equipped and easy to use. Enjoyed quite a few meals in the cottage because we loved the setting and didn't want to go out often. Great location although the signage on the road could be improved as it is quite small and easily passed by. Had to order a taxi during our stay and they had a hard time finding us without exact GPS coordinates.

Our return visit to Ida Cottage with 4 adults and an energetic toddler. A lovely, well equipped,comfortable property with extensive grounds to sit beside river or play football. Near many National Trust properties with beautiful gardens to visit and child friendly facilities. Enjoyed immensely by our toddler grandson with lots of space to play ,the horses as an added bonus to watch. Owners helpful and prompt to rectify any problems.

Excellent place for group of friends to holiday together (along with Giles cottage)

This was the most lovely property, beautiful location and very friendly owners. Please publish our complete satisfaction with Ida Cottage

this is a fab place , really nice and homely. Annabel was an amazing and warm host

A warning regarding the rather steep access to the lane from the main road - with a loaded car very easy to 'ground'

Reply from Classic Cottages

We're so sorry to hear that you had some access worries - we're not sure where the steep section was, as it's not something our Property Manager has encountered on her visits? There is a slight downhill slope but this isn't overly steep. We'll check it out again, but of course would also say that the beautiful little Dartmoor lanes will be a little more rugged than the bigger roads. Tanya, Customer Support

More kitchen equipment than my own kitchen! Super cottage in a blissful setting. Mattress topper and bed linen was gorgeous. Shower was excellent. Three ensuites is obviously a bonus too. Beds very comfortable. Location was perfect for Tavistock and beautiful with the water running through so close to the cottages.

A thoroughly delightful stay. This is a beautiful property and very well situated to enjoy this part of Devon

Thank you.

Excellent property for a holiday with 6 adults. Plenty of room to sit and relax with a well equipped kitchen.
Location ideal for exploring Dartmoor but within reach of Plymouth and Exeter for those rainy days. Helpful but not intrusive hosts. A bonus with beautiful grounds with a stream to sit beside.

Highly recommended place to stay at. The owners are very helpful. A lot of spots are in good reachable distance, and definively a good starting point for walks in the Dartmoor. We definitively will stay at Ida Cottage when we are in this area again.

This was the ideal location to explore Dartmoor and then come back to the cottage which was so relaxing. The owners too were very attentive and made our stay really enjoyable.
